Moving Memo Pad Brings Handwritten E-mail To The DSi

By Spencer . April 28, 2009 . 10:18am


We don’t have it yet, but when Moving Memo Pad comes stateside it will have more community features and scribble mail. Moving Memo Pad version 2 lets users jot messages with the touch screen and send them directly to another user.


Aspiring animators get new brushes and advanced copy/paste features to make drawing easier. Did you watch an awesome video? Version 2 lets users leave post hand drawn comments and award artists with color stars. Videos are also sorted in eight channels like “sports” and “moving memo game” supposedly making them easy to find.


Out of all the DSiWare applications I’ve had the most fun with Moving Memo Pad. If Nintendo can build a strong community the service would be even better. However, some of these additions stem from Hatena, a Japanese blog portal that Nintendo teamed up with for uploading and sharing Moving Memo Pad drawings. I wonder who Nintendo of America plans on linking up with in North America. The e-mail feature should come over without a problem which could be a major hit for the Nintendo DSi by itself.

    What interests me most about this is that there is a significant update to it at all. Here’s to hoping they change their mind about Dr. Mario RX Express, and add local and internet wifi play, which should have been in there….

    I agree it will be a hit here in the United States. I would be one of the many to create animation similar to what is done on the moving memo pad. I see the media videos on youtube of cartoons people made in!
    I did not know this was a feature North America lacked. So what did I do? I ended up buying a dsi less than 12 hours ago only to find out I can not animate on it. I’m not waiting too long. The sooner the better. That way I for sure will not have to sell my dsi. Games are cool and all but animation plus games like Japan has is what I want. If Nintendo can not offer this. Well, thats one less customer for a dsi. I aslo Know they could of allowed more than 10 seconds of voice recording. More memory on sd cards.(download games to sd card) and had a video recorder and player. All these phones have it, shoots! Stop witholding the technology as if we were blind and stupid. I may not be batting a thousand today, but come on now?
